Holly Beth Vincent “Hey Boy” b/w “Smash”

(Ramo!) It’s been a lot of years since Holly and the Italians made one of the best American/British New Wave records of the skinny tie-era, and the Chicago born/London discovered/L.A-based/Minnesota label-having power popper may have dropped a little lower in the vocal register, but has not lost an ounce of attitude, impact, or skill, as these two finally honed pieces of pop candy have more personality, depth, and magic than 98.6 percent of the bands playing the International Pop Overthrow fest. Now with 66% less Italians! (last statement not factchecked)
